A Great rum for mixing in coke or some ginger beer; brings out a lot of the flavor. It just isn't the best for sipping straight.

I originally bought this to be a gold mixing rum as I was getting low. The reviews were pretty good, so I bought the rum. Did a taste testing with my other mixing golds, and this is far superior to them. I also did a taste testing to my sipping rums. While it was not a smooth, it was one I could do an evening supping over ice.

Total Wine and Spirits had this rum available for $21.99. Advertised with a 93 rating from the Beverage Testing Institute and 4.5 stars from customers. As a fan of Barbados rums I thought I'd give 896 a try. It's very good for the price, but as others have said here it's more of a mixer than a sipper. Expected a little more complexity for an 8 year rum.

Good rum, much better than the 5 year. Especially good flavor for the price.

Was tempted into this by the sleek labeling and the on-sale price tag of a mere $18 (if memory serves).

Mild, bordering on unexciting, but quite smooth. Moderately sweet as well. Gentle and caramely on the nose with only a slight alcohol nip. Maybe just a touch of vanilla, but flavors are really quite muted.

I do think this is quite a nice mixer, and have enjoyed a couple of great rum'n'cokes with it already. For sipping it's a bit uninteresting but fine for a quick dip now and then, as it's hardly unpleasant.

Nose is pleasant
Feels a bit watery and cheap
But has some upside might make a better cocktail rum then a sipper

The flavor is what Iโ€™m looking for but it doesnโ€™t com through enough

I purchased this to be a mixer and it does quite a nice job. I would not consider it a sipper.

Too strong for 8-year aging, but 896 has a nice flavor once you can feel your tongue again.
